Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
An award–winning writer delivers a major reckoning with religion, place, and sexuality in the aftermath of 9/11

Hailed in The Washington Post as “one of the most eloquent and probing public intellectuals in America,” Richard Rodriguez now considers religious violence worldwide, growing public atheism in the West, and his own mortality.

Rodriguez’s stylish new memoir—the first book in a decade from the Pulitzer Prize finalist—moves from Jerusalem to Silicon Valley, from Moses to Liberace, from Lance Armstrong to Mother Teresa. Rodriguez is a homosexual who writes with love of the religions of the desert that exclude him. He is a passionate, unorthodox Christian who is always mindful of his relationship to Judaism and Islam because of a shared belief in the God who revealed himself within an ecology of emptiness. And at the center of this book is a consideration of women—their importance to Rodriguez’s spiritual formation and their centrality to the future of the desert religions.

Only a mind as elastic and refined as Rodriguez’s could bind these threads together into this wonderfully complex tapestry.

Summary: Praise for Days of Obligation: An Argument with My Mexican Father " Days of Obligation looks into Americanorth and south of the Rio Grandeas penetratingly and eloquently as Camus did when he compared the mental landscapes of France and Algiers."David Lohrey, The Los Angeles Times Book Review "The best American essayist, as far as I'm concerned. [Rodriguez] doesn't kowtow to political correctness. He shuns the pack, rides alone. He writes a lonely line of individualism, the grandeur and grief of the American soul."Enrique Fernandez, The Village Voice "It is like nothing I have ever read before, and the sheer dazzle of its suggestions says more about America than anything I have read since Lawrence."Pico Iyer, author of Falling Off the Map "With Days of Obligation , Richard Rodriguez has nearly come full circle, right down to the prose, whose lyrical intensity stands in sharp contrast to Hunger of Memory's brittle minimalism. He is a dedicated stylist, turning arguments over and over, at times cynically detached, at others disarmingly revelatory about his own conflicts. The language expands and contracts, following the contours of alienation, love, and mourning. He writes with the enthusiasm of a younger writer exploring themes he once dismissed (he was so much older when he wrote Hunger , he's younger now)."Ruben Martinez, Los Angeles Weekly "A book of astonishing beauty. Here is a writer who can make words riot."Kathy Dobie, Vogue. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0670025305
